NEW YORK (WIVB)–Governor Cuomo signed a package of bills Monday to enhance services and bolster protections for New York veterans.

According to the governor’s office, the 14 bill package will protect the rights of vets and active military members in areas such as education, employment, voting, discharge status protection, and general services and benefits.

“Our veterans put their lives on the line to defend our nation, and we must honor them and support them just as they supported us,” Governor Cuomo said.
